Bachelor of Science; tuition language: German

The following English language content is for information purposes only. The legally binding content can be found on the corresponding German website.


The B.Sc. Physik degree programme consists of an orientation subject area, a mandatory subject area (Elementary and Theoretical Physics, Mathematics, Laboratories), and an elective subject area.

Until the end of the second semester, at least one module of the mandatory must have been successfully completed.

General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the Technical University of Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. Therefore it is recommended that students complete a Master's programme.

From experience, the range of activities for graduates of the Physik programme is constantly expanding. Physicists work, for instance, in the fields of fundamental and industrial research, application-oriented development, on planning and examination assignments in the industry and administration, in the fields of consultancy and sales, in the banking sector, in politics and management, and in academic teaching. The different fields of activity require innovative solutions and examine new types of problems. In order to fulfill the requirements for such duties, the students need to obtain sufficiently broad fundamental knowledge of Experimental and Theoretical Physics and of the Mathematics necessary for it. Current examples for the fast implementation of findings of physical research into technical applications are semiconductor technology and optoelectronics as the foundation for communications and data technology, and laser physics as the foundation for modern optics and material processing and for medical applications.
